We have our Kate!!


Oh happy day! The travelers are HOME!! My family is back where they belong!
It was like we had always known each other....Kate just walked up to me held up her arms...and I swept her up! I had planned on staying in the background to give Kate some much needed space. She had different ideas!! Dick took these pictures with his cell phone and most of them will be a bit blurry but you can get an idea of this mornings celebration at the airport.



My girls...







Holly, Carolin, Brad and their children gathered to welcome our Kate



Rebecca, Emma (Carolin's angels)and Leah



Rebecca...what a doll!


Itsy Bitsy Spider...the universal language.


Sissy, Shawn, Leah, Kate and Jennie traveled for 2 hard long days to get back home.

They are tired and weary, but oh so happy!!

Thank you dear Lord for your help and protection! We are forever grateful!

Oh my goodness! Kate knows a fabulous grandma when she sees one! You must have been soooo excited! It is obvious that Leah missed you too!

Congrats, again, on the newest addition to your family!

I opened your blog and tears came to my eyes. Oh what a happy happy family you all are! Congratulations on such a happy momentous day. Showers of blessings on the days to come. I love that you sat right down on the floor of the airport and played with your grand babies. Thanks for sharing this precious moment with us!
